FRP is a cost-effective material choice that is ideal for many types of construction. Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are widely used in the construction industry because of their design flexibility, high strength-to-weight ratio, non-conductivity, low maintenance, affordability, UV resistance, and flame retardance. General composites offer jetties in FRP.
Wood and steel used in the construction of jetties on the harbor is very likely to rot and rust in the long run. This requires frequent maintenance.
Use of FRP gratings for jetties and walkways has many advantages.
- Corrosion resistant
- Easy to install
- Light weight
- Low maintenance
- Anti-slippery surface
